It’s no surprise I’ve ‘shazamed’ this song twice recently and the band’s name happens to be St. Lucia.  Even my ears are longing for warmer days!

st lucia band

Set your mind in a sunny mode by hitting play and you won’t be disappointed.

review reads, “Native South African pop singer Jean-Philip Grobler’s band name evokes the exotic imagery of an extinct volcano, tropical forests, mountainous terrain, and all the sandy beaches that comprise the island of St. Lucia in the Eastern Caribbean Sea.

The album deftly balances a fine line between unabashed indie pop and a more conventional synth pop sound.  Intros and outros are often tied together through swirling synthesizer passages that evoke the soundtracks to ‘80s fantasy films, images of hand gliding through clouds or hazy island sunsets.” – Ryan Lathan

March 18, 2014

Whip up one of these wonderful meals tonight and enjoy the extra time you won’t spend washing a sink full of dirty dishes…


We found this appetizing Spinach Artichoke Pasta on Life Tastes Good. A dinnertime dish reminiscent of the popular spinach artichoke dip (it’s a great  option for vegetarians).


Some like it hot! If you do, try out this Easy One-Pot Buffalo Chicken Pasta recipe. Tested and approved by new mom Jessica from the Sunny Side Up Blog.

Head over to Five Heart Home to take a look at this recipe for Easy Fried Rice. The beauty of this one is that you can use up the all the leftovers in your fridge!

Spaghetti is a staple is many households, but this version of the recipe really does show you how to make the entire dish in one pot. Maya of Alaska from Scratch points out that cooking the noodles in the sauce eliminates the need for a strainer and the flavor of the sauce actually gets cooked in the pasta.

This flavorful meal of Roasted Chicken and Asparagus is prepared from start to finish using an oven-proof dutch oven.  Take a trip over to For The Love of Cooking where Pam shares all  the tasty details.

Can’t decide between pizza and pasta? Now you don’t have to…Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road has created the perfect one-pot pasta meal complete with all of your favorite pizza toppings.

Here’s one last  scrumptious way to use up leftovers–you might want to bookmark this one for the Easter ham. You can find the recipe for this satisfying ooey-gooey Ham and Cheese Gnocchi on the the Kevin & Amanda Blog.
